SAM, an Edmonton, Canada-based online social media search, curation and storytelling platform for newsrooms, secured a seed round financing of undisclosed amount.
The Associated Press and a number of other investors participated in the round.
The company will use the capital to grow the development team and its customer base, as well as to build out offices in major media centres, starting with London and followed shortly thereafter by New York.
Led by James Neufeld, CEO and Founder, SAM operates an online platform that powers social media search, curation and storytelling for newsrooms and media companies. Launched in 2013, the company counts AP, Reuters, FT, WSJ, Guardian, Toronto Star, Reportedly and other blue-chip media companies as clients.
